“Dance is an art form based on organic flows of energy and inherently related to the physics and metaphysics of motion, and early 20th century dance artists consciously worked to develop movement principles based on the physics of wave rhythms. Drawing on principles from Ancient Greek philosophy and working with a very specific relationship between music and movement, these dancers describe sensations of weightlessness, disappearance, and luminosity as the subtle energy effect of their movement practices. In these practices, the music acts as a vibrational force that is reflected in a wave-like rhythm, alternately moving through the body or lifting the body and propelling it through space”. Meg Brooker
